St Luke's Hospital for the Clergy

St Luke’s Hospital provides free medical and surgical treatment for the Anglican clergy, their spouses and dependent children, not only from the UK but also third world countries where health care is inadequate. In addition, the Hospital provides vital care for overseas missionaries and clergy who do not qualify for NHS Treatment here in the UK. The aim of the Hospital is to treat patients quickly and get them back to where they are most needed, in their parish.

St Luke’s is an independent charity hospital that depends heavily on the goodwill of others. The Hospital receives no mainstream National Health Service funding, despite saving the NHS over 3000 bed nights every year; an estimated saving of £4 million for an already hard-pressed NHS. Instead, it relies on money from individuals, parishes, dioceses and trusts. The hospital is also deeply indebted to its 200 honorary consultants who give freely of their time and who, last year, carried out more than 1000 procedures for Clergy patients.
